The Brightest Bulb in the Bunch

How would you describe your design aesthetic? If you answered, "Industrial-cool with a touch of Thomas Edison chic," let us introduce you to this handcrafted lamp. Sturdy with a vintage feel, the piece starts with a block of hand-carved wood, topped with a cast-iron mechanical part. Fastened to that is a porcelain socket fitted with an Edison-style filament bulb (included!). Illuminate it by tapping the iron through three levels of brightness, so you can set the mood, whether it's for displaying, entertaining, or taking notes on your life-changing invention. Handcrafted in Los Angeles—by craftsmen from as many generations back as designer Luke Hobbs can recall.

Luke Hobbs knows why he creates: "It's a great feeling when someone has a particular connection with a piece," says the Los Angeles-based artist. With his work, that happens often. Luke imbues his designs—unique combinations of anthropomorphism and modernity—with a sense of familiarity. "I love sourcing out antique, vintage, or industrial items to incorporate in my work," he says. As a lighting and furniture designer who comes from a long line of skilled midwestern craftspeople, he strives for ingenuity as much as quality. "I am constantly inspired by my surroundings," he says. “I really notice and gain inspiration from details, structure, texture, and layers. I love architecture and urban living, but also have a love for nature."
